Here is the full post:
“An uneducated human being said: Diba Kumuha ng kursong Educ yan? Hindi pa ba siya nagtuturo? Hala, sayang dapat hanap kana work.
In myself: Ayaw ko sa lahat ay yung iniinsulto o minamaliit mga magulang ko de baling ako nalang e. kasi ang magulang ko nabubuhay lang sila sa puro sipag at tiyaga mairaos lang kami buong pamilya.
Opo tindero, kami mama ko taga tinda ng almusal at ulam pero sa ganitong paraan napapakita ko pong edukado ako at hanggat nabubuhay ang magulang ko patuloy ko po silang tutulungan at susuportahan. Ang mahalaga may silbi at sense tayo sa lipunan at hindi pagiging (toxic) ang inaatupag at pinagkaka abalahan.
I just want to try insipire others especially mga kabataan to be educated enough about sa hindi nakakahiya ang pagtitinda at lalong lalo na sa hanap buhay ng ating magulang kaya iwasan mag inarte dapat maging madiskarte lamang tayo sa panahon ng kagipitan wag tayo magcomplain kung bakit ganito? ganyan? Tandaan po natin na masama ang magkumpara at dapat stay humble lang tayo kahit ano pa ang marating natin sa buhay. Spread goodvibes Thank You😇.”
